The Top 10 Points for Goal Oriented Accelerated Learning
What this is basically saying is Learn It, Teach It, Practice What You Preach!
G.O.A.L. (Goal Oriented Accelerated Learning) Training is a collection of tools to help you and your clients learn faster, easier, better.
1. Decide to learn.
Really; if you don't decide to really learn it, you may just learn about it, and not be able to use it and really make it yours. Best if you do this with a Learning Coach!
2. Learning Goal.
Have a Learning Goal for each thing you are to learn, so you know what it is you are going to learn, how you'll know when you have learned it (a way to measure and be sure), and a purpose for learning. Be specific, and don't stop until you achieve your Learning Goal.
3. Transfer and use what you already know to what you are learning and doing.
Make it easy on yourself, and integrate everything you know: rote memory isn't real learning. Double check to make sure your learning is in the context of your Learning Goal; don't let it be separate!
4. Develop a sense and belief that this knowledge BELONGS to you, that it is yours.
If you don't believe it is yours, can't keep it, you'll either not learn it or forget it. Make it yours.
5. Learn it easily and quickly, because learning isn't difficult.
Trying to learn and not learning are difficult. When learning is actually occurring, it happens rapidly. Learning actually cannot occur slowly! Preparing to learn, and deciding what to learn...this can take time. But the moment of learning occurs quickly. So make sure you aren't learning, "I can't do it", or "This is hard"; all learning takes place quickly, when it happens! A deep decision to learn, a learning goal, transferring knowledge, making it yours...means you're already learning, and learning what you want to learn. It's easy and fast when you are doing it, hard and slow when you're not.
6. Have fun and experience pleasure when you learn.
Learning will be deeper, easier, and this is almost too obvious to say, but you'll experience fun and pleasure, too. Not bad! Also, you'll be more motivated to learn; fun and pleasure are rewarding. You can even make a decision to have fun learning, you can even decide to make continuous learning a way of life, the way you live. You'll learn more easily, have more fun, and always be upgrading yourself. A good way to live.
7. Experience what you learn in three dimensions, in real situations, applied in situations you remember, and connect with other related lessons.
When you are doing that, and realize you are doing it...you'll have learned. If you just memorize, acquire but don't use information, let what you learn be two dimensional or flat, don't connect what you learn with other knowledge...you just haven't really learned, not yet. This is what you already do in subject areas you are good at and experience mastery in. Please do it in all subjects, all areas of learning.
8. Teach what you've learned to someone else, using similar methods, and teach them and see to it that they teach yet someone else what you've learned. Not only will the teaching and learning continue to spread, but you'll learn a LOT in the process!
9. Add to what you've learned, improve it.
Create something new and better: upgrade.
10. Teach someone else to add to it, and see to it that they do the same.
The learning spreads, and you'll learn at higher levels, when you do this.
